Hi, somone's probably asked this before, but is there a difference between the model made when bob moog owned the company and when he didn't? It would seem logical that by adopting his name to the product he would make some sort of customization or something.

Thanks

I understand the instrument has been revised slightly over the years, but no particular alterations were made for the occasion of the company name change other than the new company name being printed on the face plate.

Can I ask a question too? Why was production on the 91a stopped? Because that theremin is arguably the sweetest sounding ever produced- it has a vocal tone that rivals the RCA, and yet it is no longer produced, and Moog apparently have no wishes to begin production on similar models again. Why?!

I believe production was stopped shortly before the Ethervox was introduced.

I don't know how well they were selling, but I imagine they might do better even these days given the recent resurgence in theremin interest.

About $1400, I thought, for the cheapest case. Definetely worth it though, if you had the money.

I scanned recent auctions and couldn't find any previous Series 91 sales listed. I'm very curious to know what the market would dictate for a used 91 these days.

An interesting read is Charlie Lester's review of the Etherwave Pro.

Charlie plays a series 91, but feels that the E-Pro is the closest to creating the "RCA sound" and the "Clara sound".
